joe biden goes head to head with congressman paul ryan in the vice presidential debate. of course, our anticipation is heightened by the loss that the champ took in round one on wednesday night. president obama pulled a lot of his punches in his debate with governor romney, so if the original strategy was for biden to go in with a soft touch against paul ryan, we can be sure that that is going out the window. he is coming out swinging. gloves off. now, romney was able to dodge blows against his economic plan because actually there's not much of a plan there to jab at. take his strategy for economic recovery, to fill the revenue gap for a result from tax cuts is an exercise in shadow boxing futility. he hasn't yet told us what it is he's planning to do. but by hitching his wagon to paul ryan and endorsing ryan's budget plan, he attached himself to clearly articulated policy and a record that leaves the whole ticket exposed to attack which gives joe biden an opening to hit romney so hard -- to hit ryan so hard that mitt romney is going to feel it too. from the sound of it, the vice presi
ryan goes up against joe biden, and candidates have less and less tried to paint it as a victory, nobody agrees with it. and david axelrod said the president let mitt romney get away with too much. the president is his own worst critic. and robert gibbs, of course, works directly for the campaign, and newt gingrich talked more about the campaign, let's have a little bit more of a listen. >> it is not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointed in the expectations he has for himself. but look, i think part of that was because as i said earlier, we met a new mitt romney, we met a mitt romney that wanted to walk away from the central theory of his economic plan, which was his tax cut. i don't have a tax plan that is 4.8 trillion, i am not going to cut taxes on the rich. i don't have a voucher plan, i love teachers, i think we need more of them. don't believe me, speaker gingrich was eloquent in the primaries, saying that mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> the president had 90 minutes, now, if he had done his homework and prepared, if he had
, joining me from washington, chris co-feen is and from philadelphia, republican strategist, joe watkins, working on sunday, keeping it holy. we appreciate you. >> thanks for that. >> let's get back to something that we touched on a few moments ago, joe. i want to play this clip again. of governor rollny. the governor showing his softer side. i want to play the clip and talk about something on the other side. take a listen. >> on one occasion, he brought me into his bedroom while he was still at home and he said, mitt, what happens next? and i talked to him about what i believe about life hereafter. >> that's the governor talking about a 14-year-old boy that he counseled when he was a pastor of his mormon congregation. that is a governor romney, that heretofore no one has really seen, chris kofinas. why now? >> this is part of their strategy to build off of their debate performance. i mean clearly, i would say it's partly the strategy going into the town hall format. town hall formats are very different than traditional debates. you have people in the audience. people going do react to w
edwards. you know, joe biden, yes, everybody talks about the gas on the trail. the guy i would argue most of the democratic primary won of the democratic debates in 2008. >> but this is a high wire act with joe biden. they're going to be pouring jolt cola down his throat. they're going to have a couple of days of bad polling. ryan is impressive, but hasn't done this before. and you've got biden who is a high wire act in an attack mode which isn't always his natural place. >> here's my question if i can ask you, hilary. there is an immediate reaction to these debates about how do you feel. because there's so much information and this was such a substantive debate because you pointed out between romney and the president. you can't score all of that at home. and there is an initial impression and a second impression that can develop over time. how does that factor in? we've seen it i mean you've heard it here from robert, they're going to try to ground down romney on the idea he's a chameleon. that was different from wow, he really performed well. >> interestingly, the groups of undecided sh
't a single word mentioned about the latter. thursday between joe biden and paul ryan voters will get a chance to hear what candidates have to say about a host of issues beyond budget, policy and health care. things like voting rights, women's rights, topics that were omitted last week between president obama and romney. the issue of sensible gun laws. the first presidential debate took place a short distance from aurora, colorado. a victim had a message for the candidates in an ad that airs during the debate. >> this past summer in a movie theater in colorado, i was shot. shot in the face and neck. but i was lucky. in the next four years, 48,000 americans won't be so lucky because they will be murdered with guns in the next president's term. enough to fill 200 theaters. when you watch the presidential debates, ask yourself, who has a plan to stop gun violence? let's demand a plan. it didn't get an area. joining us is comedian chris. john warner and rebecca, contributor to the magazine. i feel of two minds about the debate. focus is good. depth is good. i was appreciative they allowed depth on
